I think they'd probably try Harper in CF before Werth. Werth is old and slow. Him and Morse would be pretty bad in the corners but either of them in center would be an abortion.

Abomination? Or stem cell research to make Werth less old and less slow? I've never heard a bad outfielder referred to as an abortion before.

Holy crap. Don't turn the beloved comet thread into a stupid baseball thread.

Deep end alert! I still love the Comets and like them more for trick shots but overall i'm officially migrating onto the Coyote trail.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

I'm not saying that i'd ditch the Comets. On local courses i have few opportunities to throw it because putter drives are preferable in most cases over mids. The Coyote is putter LSS if it is thrown fast. But with more HSS for my probably unclean releases beyond about 220'. That means more margin of error. The Comet is still as useful in getting out of trouble as it ever was. So i'd say the Coyote steps on Rocs, Buzzzes and MD2s and the like more than the Comet. Those others aren't glide monsters able to move in so tight curves as the Comet. So the Coyote is complementing the Comet not replacing it.

I'm in the market for a 2002 GLO Comet. If anyone has one, please PM me and maybe we can work something out. I'm also always on the hunt for Ron Russell Z-Comets.

Cheers,

maybe you should make a thread in B/S/T instead of just bumping the comet thread with no content.

Some say I have both a Ron Russel Comet and a First Run Tourney Pro Comet I wouldn't mind making a fair coin off of...


On a more content related note, unless I'm throwing into the wind I throw the Comet for anything out to 380 now. The only holes at the local course I play the most that I have trouble parking with it are the ones that play over 400...

What's more, while I'm waiting for it to land, I get a great opportunity to work on my dance moves! CHA CHA CHA!!

Edit: funny to see people say when they get rusty they have to swap out Comets for overstable stuff. When I get rusty I find myself not turning the Comet enough! Take some fingers off the rim, lads! :lol:
I threw Wizards before they were cool.

For me I can't get the flight to manipulate properly on a consistent basis - basically all I get is straight shots and having a hard time getting turns to hold to the ground and nice gentle hyzers. Not that it's a bad thing, and I'm not necessarily swapping for overstable stuff (are rocs even considered overstable midranges nowadays?), just using rocs from super beat dx to kc pro for all my shots instead. Gives me a bit more confidence that I don't have to finesse the disc as much to get the flight I want.

oh, and I throw everything except drivers with a fan grip ;)
